A Guide to Ant Pest Control

Warm summer months mean more open windows, picnics, backyard barbecues, and of course, more ants. Unfortunately, ants increase their activity and search for food as the weather gets warmer. In fact, ants are among the most common household pests across the U.S. They thrive in warm weather, gathering food and preparing for hibernation during winter. Once ants find an entry point to your home, an ant infestation can happen quickly.
If you’re dealing with an ant problem in your home, read this guide to learn how ant pest control treatment can restore peace to your interior space.
What is the best pest control method for ants?
The type of ant pest control services that work best depends on the species of ant you’re dealing with and your specific situation. Hawx offers a General Pest Control service package can effectively handle most types of ant infestations. Our “GPC” package offers protection against the most common household pests, including several varieties of ants. Although we refer to this plan as “general,” the services we provide are tailored to your individual needs and your region. We take great care to create a customized pest control plan for each home we visit.
What are the types of ant treatment programs?
Hawx professionals provide customized pest control for ants that meet your home’s specific needs and address unique challenges of different varieties of ants. Along with our GPC services, we offer optional packages specifically targeting two species of ants—fire ants and carpenter ants—which differ from other ant species in material ways and require different treatment plans.
Fire ant pest control methods
When fire ants bite, they inject something called formic acid into the skin. This can cause welts, allergic reactions, and white bumps that often last several days, making them a public health concern and an unwelcome visitor to your home. The process of fire ant pest control is complex and requires specialized attention. Depending on the size of your property and the number of fire ant mounds, our team develops a wide-scope treatment covering most of your outdoor spaces. We can also implement a specific mound-based treatment for excessive ant mounds in areas where children or pets spend time.
Carpenter ant pest control methods
Carpenter ants require specialized treatment because they destroy the wood in the structure of your home. They chew through wood without consuming it, leaving behind a material similar to sawdust. The optional carpenter ant service works to eliminate existing carpenter ant nests and prevent the formation of new nests.
Because carpenter ants can be hard to locate on your property, uur teams start by focusing on the inspection process. We also identify all moisture conditions and provide recommendations to help prevent carpenter ants from even getting started on new nests. We then perform a two-part treatment of dust products and baits that can work as fast as 7 to 10 days.
How much does professional ant treatment cost?
At Hawx Pest Control, ant control is part of our affordable general pest control package (with Fire Ant and Carpenter Ant treatments being separate). The total cost of your ant control treatment will be noted in a free estimate that depends on several factors we determine on our first visit to your home.
